Ummm...well...!

Would not recommend Thu, May 1, 2014
I stayed here 3 nights, which were prepaid. If I had to do it all over again I would stay else ware. Staff was friendly and helpful, the room was just okay. Perhaps it was just my room but it would be nice to at least have room for a chair to sit down other than having to sit on the bed all the time. To add, I asked for a non-smoking room, and they said that the hotel is a non-smoking hotel except for a few room. After the first night it was clear that it was the other way around. This is a smoking hotel with some rooms that are non-smoking. I say this because around ten in the evening when most of the guests were in their rooms the entire hotel smelled of cigarettes, including the staff area in the reception. When I pay $120 US per night I personally expect a little more than friendly staff and location. if you can get it for cheaper price it's an "ok" stay. Cheers

Attractions

Almost, grand bazaar, Egyptian spice market, shopping, restaurants and the port, all the short walk from the hotel.

Would not recommend Fri, Feb 28, 2014
Even the hotel is well located, it is around about five minutes on foot from Blue Mosque and just few miles from Ataturk Airport, it had turned out a can or worms. To beginning with it was extremely noise because the hotel was under repair and workers have not stopped to hammer until midnight came. In addition the hotel has strong fresh paint and varnish smell, some used black bags made of plastic were into the closed, the rug looks it has not be cleaned since along and a cockroach run happily on the floor. THE HOTEL HAS NOT RESTAURANT, SO YOU SHALL FORGET TO GET A VIEW OF ISTANBUL LIKE THE PICTURES THAT ARE SHOWN ( I think photographs could be taken from a restaurant closed there, but it doesn't belong to hotel)
